Q: Q: No crank/no start

asked by on

Hi and thank you to whoever is reading this.I have a no crank/no start issue. Everything was working fine till I get in my car drive a couple blocks and car dies at a stop light. Push it to the side and go to crank it and nothing. Had a new battery lying around at my shop so I put that in and nothing. Terminals are clean and fine. So I had it towed back to my shop and I suspected it was a bad alternator. Had it tested at my local auto parts store and it was bad so I bought a new one slapped it back on and nothing still no crank. So next was my starter, removed and had it tested and that was bad as well (or the auto parts store employees just wanted to sell) so bought a new one and installed it and STILL no crank no start. Triple checked every connection and nothing. Bad ignition switch maybe?..I believe I dont have a fuse/relay for the starter in my car but all fuses look fine..

My car has 180000 miles.
My car has an automatic transmission.
